Default new four channel amp...?

I am looking at getting a new four channel amp. The one I have is getting old and crapping out. I am looking at different brands for something that will put out about 75+ watts rms each channel. The brands I have been looking at are Alpine, RF, Kicker, Sony specialty series and MTX.

Was wondering if anybody had an four channel amps from these companies? And if so, what they thought of them?

Or if you have something else that is good let me know.

Thanks for any input.

1993 SLE, that RF P4004 was the exact amp I was looking at from them.

Hans, have never really heard anything about Elemental Designs before, I will have to do some research on them. I looked into their eDead a while back, I will have to do some research on their amps. Thanks for the heads up on them.

Thanks for the quick replies.

My Bonne came with an older alpine V12 amp. 50w per channel I think??? It sounds nice and clear and for an older amp it gets pretty loud but I like more power so im swapping it over to my RF 851X four channel 110W x 4 come spring

Yep JL Audio 300/4 is one of the best 4-way amps until you start getting into really high end car audio. I happen to have one forsale too.

They went through a phase where their stuff wasn't the best... but some of their new stuff is really impressive. Still I have never really been a fan of RF but that doesn't mean that it isn't good stuff.
